Bread with minced pork meatball and boiled egg

Never before had every body known why “Banh mi thit on Nguyen Hue street” became so familiar to Phan Thiet people. The only thing we are certain about is that people from all walks of life, regardless of age, are willing to wait in queue to buy the delicious breads from late afternoon until nearly mid night. 
Chi Minh City Television and I experienced the busy and crowded atmosphere at the small bread counter which is opposite to Duc Nghia flower garden on Nguyen Hue street when we arrived there at around 8 pm. I was not only surprised but also excited when a customer explained that the bread counter got its name “Banh Mi Ba Chi Em” (The Three Sister Bread) because the three sisters have to help eachother to make breads. 
Coming closer, I could smell the delightful flavor of the warmed bread with xui mai (minced pork meatball), xa xiu(char siu), eggs, chillifish sauce, pickled carrots, and other vegetable. On the small counter, there are a lot of dishes of xui mai, xa xiu, cha ca (minced fried fish), cucumbers and other vetgetable which are attractive, and stimulating the taste buds.

Customers can choose what to put in “banh mi” together with the unique fish sauce, depending on their favor. It is the fish sauce with chillithat makes “Phan Thiet-Style Banh Mi Xui Mai” become unique. Unlike salt with pepper or soya sauce, the fish sauce is special and delicious because of the sourness of lime, sweetness of sugar and the particular flavor of Phan Thiet fishsauce.
